LAS VEGAS -- The Consumer Electrics Show kicked off Tuesday in Las Vegas. Last year, 20,000 products debuted at the show.

The theme for products unveiled so far? Bendable and wearable.

Samsung introduced the world's first bendable TV. At the push of a button, the 85-inch screen curves, transforming from a traditional flat screen. It also has a 4K screen, which has four times the picture resolution of typical 1080p screens. Samsung didn't unveil the price of the TV.

LG announced its G Flex smartphone will go on sale in a few months through AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. The phone is curved to fit users' hands and faces, but it will also flex if pushed down on.

Now, to wearable: there are a slew of new products hitting the market that combine smart watches and fitness bands.

The Razer Nabu is one of them. It tracks your activity, sleep and location. It also delivers emails and text messages.

Corning unveiled Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass, which inhibits the growth of bacteria and mold. It is embedded with iconic silver, which kills microbes. So far, no smartphones are being made with it.
